OSAKA: President Donald Trump is not yet willing to remove the Chinese telecom giant Huawei from a trade blacklist.

But the president said Saturday that he would now allow U.S. companies to sell components to Huawei again.

The fate of the company had become central in the ongoing US-China trade battle. Trump, attending an international summit in Japan, announced that negotiations between the two nations would resume.

But Trump said that the company’s future would not be decided until the end of the trade talks.

He met with China’s President Xi Jinping earlier Saturday but said that the topic of Meng Wanzhou, a Huawei executive held in Canada at the request of the United States, was not discussed.
